Benefit Shopping

A quick post to let you know there is a benefit shopping event for the next few days. The donation items are one of a kind designs that will not be available after the Montana Goldrush closes. There are tons of booths to on the sky platform, most of them set up and active already. The Baubles - PhotoGraphique booth is between Iced and Nushru and this is my one of a kind donation item. It contains goodies for both gals and guys and is transfer. So if you are one of those shoppers that loves having limited edition items, this may be the place for you this weekend.

While the prices range from inexpensive to high donation range, I opted for the make it inexpensive so people will want to buy ethic. This set of five pieces is $25

From the notecard:

The benefit will kick off February 19th 2010, at 5:00 pm SL time opening with a concert by the SL Def Leppard . The event will run through the weekend (Saturday and Sunday, February 20th and 21st) with live DJ’s around the clock. On the evening of February 21st, we will wrap it up with another concert.

We are putting together a special benefit for a fellow designer and a wonderful friend here in sl named Margo Imako. She is the owner of Steambound, a store selling costumes ranging from Victorian, Western, and Pirate, to Lingerie and Latex. Her store is located at:

Margo has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Mucinous Adenocarcinoma of the Appendix, Stage IV. She will require a surgery people call 'MOAS' (Mother of all Surgeries) because of its intensity.

Without surgery her chances beyond 3 years are slim. With a successful surgery her chances past the next 5 years go up to 80%. Margo is 39 and has a husband and three children all under the age of 10.

We are calling on all designers to open your hearts and give of your time and creative ability to help raise funds to offset the medical expenses entailed in Margo's battle with cancer.
